Above is a little preview taster for those who are interested in seeing what the book layout will look like. All the pages are complete however choosing the images and putting them in the correct place is proving difficult. I’m trying very hard to make this as bespoke and as simple as possible and not using any other references for influence. Please let me know what you think so far i’d love some feedback via email.
Due to the Corona Virus and the ongoing lock ins we are having across the world and not being able to build my office I decided it was about time I got on with publishing my Ebook and soft back editions. The 1st edition of the Fw14b 92 championship winning car should be up for sale online or from me directly from June 2020. It’s been a long time in coming but not having a great deal to do other than watch boring TV and the same films over and over again I thought I’d put my heart and sole into this. Please contact me via email should you wish any further info.
I have still to work out the costs of the soft back and ebooks, however they will not be as much as the Joe Honda books. They will be reasonably priced. I may also, as its a 1st edition put an accompanying DVD in the back of the book with all the 600 plus images that won’t all feature in the book.

I’ve been writing all day and editing all the introduction and specs data for the first chapter. Things are coming along nicely. Whilst I’ve been doing this I had an idea about doing a 2nd volume to the 1st book on a Fw14B wip with detailed shots of the build. I’m getting hold of another kit so will use this for the book. The idea is to have a step by step guide come manual for building the model.
Here is a 1st draft of the front cover of the fw14b book
2nd version also will add a ghost like profile somewhere of the car on the page.
Think this is nearer what I’m looking for.
I now have the final draft of the front cover of my book. Here it is. Now I just need to complete the rest of it.
Excuse the spelling on this at the bottom. Father picked up on this and had my guts for garters lol. Now edited and updated in ibooks author
On hold for the moment. I’m still doing bits and bobs on the book. The layout and the front cover and intro are done but due to family and work commitments and my current builds I have no time to put 100% into it. Once I’m completed I’ll update the site and load it onto the site to purchase.
For those interested I’ll be publishing an ibook on the fw14b over the coming months on ibook store. There are a few legal areas I have to look into however as the book will only consist of personal images and taken by myself and spec on the vehicle this shouldn’t be a problem. But best to cover my own back.
The book will consist of mainly images and data not specific to any particular races during the later stages of 91 leading into 92 and will be similar in approach to the Joe honda pictorials. However the images and data will be constant from start to finish. Every inch of the car will be depicted from the beginning with paragraphs to complement them. I haven’t decided on the complete layout but I’ll put a copy of the front page and a mid page to get an idea of what I’m looking for and hope for some feedback from you guys next week…..
